Can I get a “Woot-woot!”. My kids will be going back to school in about two weeks! I love them to death, but four hormonal moody teens can sure drive me crazy. 30+ Make Ahead Back to School Breakfast Recipes

The first few weeks of the school season is pretty gnarly. All the kids have gotten used to staying up late and sleeping in late. So when school starts, it takes them a bit of time to adjust to the new early morning schedule. They always wait till the last second to wake-up, which doesn’t leave much time to eat breakfast.

This year, I’ve decided to plan ahead for the back to school craziness by preparing some Make Ahead Back to School Breakfast Recipes. This way, even on the most hectic mornings, the kids can still have a great breakfast in 5 minutes or less.
